RE: [-empyre-] subscription

True enough. But the distinction to me is crucial. When I was curating in Atlanta, we had up to 3000 at a single opening - few email lists are that large. And not all of them were artists - there were a lot of curious people. Events like that - and not-for-profits also have in general strong outreach programs into the schools and other community venues - bring a melding of community and artist. We showed a great number of so-called folk artists (a term I've written against btw), all sorts of people, Susan Meiselas curated a show of El Salvadoran war photography. I've not seen the like on any email list - they tend, like empyre, to be relatively cloistered.
